Photos in html

Hi! I recently posted my instructable: it got put on the homepage and has tons of views but no likes, this may be because i made the 'ible quite long by adding photos directly into the html, making it harder to see the whole thing, should i remove the photos?

Photo Challenge: Take a Photo Everyday in January

---------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------- PLEASE READ THIS THREAD!!!! ---------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------- With the New Year comes New Year's Resolutions, and one of my on-going resolutions is to improve my photography skills.  I have a hunch I'm not the only one who wants to be a better photographer, so I would like to pose a challenge in which I will also participate. The Challenge: Take a photograph everyday in January. The Reward: Bragging rights and a fancy patch to show everyone that you successfully completed the challenge. Simple, right?  It doesn't have to be the best photo EVAR.  It doesn't have to be beautifully lit.  It doesn't need perfect composition.  It just has to be the very simple act of picking up your camera, taking a shot, and posting it online.  It can even be a photo you're going to use in an Instructable, a dual purpose photograph.  The trick is that it has to be done every day.  No old photos.  No rehashes.  This is for personal improvement and making photography a habit. Now I realize that not everyone will be able or willing to do this everyday because stuff happens.  If you can take a photo for 20 days in January, you will get a patch.  If you can manage to take a new photo every single day, all 31, in January, you will get a very special patch! If you would like to participate in this challenge, leave a reply to this topic saying that you accept the challenge.  As you submit your photos, reply to your original acceptance reply.  This will keep things a bit tidier, and you will be able to see your accomplishments altogether.  There's a great deal of satisfaction in seeing a big chunk of what you've done and feeling motivated to do more.  If you would like to see an example of how to submit photos for the challenge, please look for my acceptance comment on this topic and how I reply to that comment with photos I am submitting. Alternatively, you can submit links to images on your Flickr, Picasa, DeviantArt, and other image sharing services.  This will save on bandwidth usage on Instructables.  Please do not submit links to private accounts such as Facebook and Myspace.  The images must be publicly viewable without requiring a linked account. There are some mighty fine Instructables on photography, so you might want to take a look around.  Hopefully, by taking part in this challenge, you will not only improve your photography skills but your Instructables as well.  You might even be motivated to post an Instructable about photography in January! If you would like to participate in a much larger challenge, check out Project365. So here's to a Happy (and productive) New Year!

Photo orientation bug ?

Hello, I know that this sounds unlikely but if I re-orientate a photograph in Preview on my Mac and then put it in an Instructable, it reverts to the original orientation. This has only been the case on my current Instructable. Has anyone else found this to be so ? Also I still cannot reply to comments left on my current Instructable. Thank you.

Storing Digital photos?

What is the best way to store digital pictures? The dates are usually automatically downloaded in a date folder using Windows Live Photo Gallery. I would like to be able to access them easily however they are taking up room on my laptop. I've considered CD/DVDs or uploading Shutterfly, Flickr, etc however not really a permanent solution.

Photo upload stalls

This has been going on for a while now, back to when the new photo uploader was still being called a beta feature.  Sometimes when a photo is being uploaded, it stalls at 100%.  It stays there indefinitely (I've let it sit for up to 5 hours), preventing all the other photos in the queue from uploading.  This is very annoying when you're trying to upload 100 photos and leave to do something else, only to find it's been stuck at photo #5 (for example) the whole time you were away!  The only way to make things proceed is to cancel the photo that has stalled, then re-upload it once the others have finished. I typically upload larger files in the 2-3MB range.  I'm using Firefox (latest version) in Mac OS X.  Last time I tried, it did the same thing in Safari. Please take a look at this issue; having to "babysit" my uploads is one of the worst parts of writing an Instructable because it's such a waste of time!

Broadway Photo... scammers?

Well ive had my eye on the Canon Eos Digital Rebel xTi for quite some time now.I found and was amazed at their price (body + two lenses = $597)!here's the link: Canon Eos Digital Rebel xTi on bwayphoto.comI've been doing research on both the camera and the website.The camera i am happy with. I love canon cameras, especially their easy-to-use UI, and the reviews are wonderful. It's the site that I am worried about... I have read reviews on it and there are so many bad reviews on it! I bought my camcorder from the site a couple years ago, but my mom did it for me so I don't really know whether she had any problems or not (she doesn't remember either).Actually, she might have fallen for their scams because she bought me an extra battery along with it... anyway... Before i make any decisions, I'm curious if any of you trusty Instructablers have ever used the site (or any of the sites affiliated with the company) and whether or not you are happy with it. There isn't a better price i can find online or in stores, so I'm having a hard time deciding whether or not i should just go for it and have my mom negotiate with them and whatnot...So should I stick with and try them out for this, or should i spend more money on the same camera (minus one lense) at a more reliable source?

Problem with adding photos

This is concerning the box "Click to ad Images". ONce images are added you can not add more until all the current photos are used or deleted. Makes it a hassle to add photos. I must use up all the previously added photos, Then I can add more. I have to go back and remove extra photos that I did not want to use but had to so I could add additional photos.

Picasa Photos not showing Answered

The problem is every time I go to my photo album and select the photo it says "Unable to load photo" or video, or whatever it is. I try going to my Picasa app to re-upload the photos, and every time it says something like "Unable to upload photo." I have tried this several times. It won't let me access the photo or do anything with them, such as e-mail them, text them. etc. I am afraid my photos are lost forever. Is this common? What am I doing wrong? Is there a solution?

annotating photos in instructibles

The weird thing is that I should be ANSWERING this question instead of asking it. In my first Instructible I was able to add notes to the photos that would appear as square outlines until one hovered over the square, then my note would appear.  Just like in the first photo in Step 5 here: Now, doing my second I'ble, I can't manage to get this done.  So I bring up the photo and click on "edit", then on "add a note".  The text box comes up and I can enter text, but if I try to drag it to some location in the photo it won't go to anywhere outside of the upper left quadrant of the photo.  And once I leave the photo the note disappears, even though I clicked "save".  I'm using Firefox browser.   I tried Chrome as an alternate and I couldn't even enter text in the box.  Haalp!

Can't Upload Photos

I'm brand new to Instructables and can't even get a small icon photo to upload. The new uploader won't even respond at all and the old uploader will let me select photos but stalls instantly when I try to upload them. It will grind away indefinitely with no results. I even let it go for several hours on a small photo icon I use regularly with no results. For what it's worth I use Safari on a Mac runing OSX 10.5.8 Thanks, Hope someone can get me running on this.

Also i would be much grad if you could give some retouching software URL`s or even just mention thr names. Hoping from you.
